Acceptable Standards for Rehabilitated Buildings

This paper examines in general and critical terms the standards required and achievable in the rehabilitation of old buildings in the context of present political and economic policies. It looks at the requirements of Statutory Regulations, in particular those concerned with fire protection, thermal and acoustic insulation, and illustrates some of the problems in achieving acceptable standards by examining the requirements for a possible new system of lightweight concrete flooring which might be of use in rehabilitation work.
